Quote from: SGOS on March 19, 2021, 11:29:14 PMI remember Tom Poston, but haven't thought about him for years. I can't imagine Sick doing a story on him. Was it satire? I didn't follow Sick or Cracked. If one was laying around, I would read it of course, but I was loyal to Mad. It was a almost a devotion.

Quote from: Cassia on March 20, 2021, 10:39:01 AMWhen you look back at historical film and photos of people out-and-about I am often struck by how "well dressed" they are. The shift towards casual attire seems to have started in the 1960s. I guess we can view dressing up as just a superficial act, however when I do dress-up, perhaps I behave with just a bit more care, maybe subconsciously. I am sometimes accused for "overdressing", LOL. If you dress like a slob, do you act the part, I wonder?

It has been shown in studies, that if one is in a bad mood and do forced smiles, that after awhile your mood will improve to the point where you want to smile. Is dressing up sort of like that? If you dress well, do you feel better about yourself? Off the top of my head, my guess would be that it does.

Quote from: Hydra009 on March 20, 2021, 04:06:43 PMI doubt they affect how people act as much as how people are perceived to be acting. You can take a homeless person, clean them up, and put them in a nice suit and you'd be surprised how differently they're treated....
